Nikki Bella “couldn’t have dreamed of a better boy” than her son Matteo.
On July 31 last year, the 37-year-old retired professional wrestler welcomed her son to the world with her fiancé, Artem Chigvintsev, and took to social media over the weekend to plunge into the baby in honor of his first birthday.
She wrote on Instagram along with a series of photos of herself, Artyom and Matteo: “Happy Birthday to my sweet, shy, loving, wild Matteo.”
“Last year was the most incredible year of my life. It was beautiful, difficult, informative, instructive and truly amazing. Oh baby, thank you for answering prayer and making me Mummy. I couldn’t have dreamed of a better boy than you!
“You have my heart, Theo! I love you more than anything else! So my wild one has become! And many, many more birthdays! And funny topics that Muma thinks about, lol love you @theartemc (sic)”
Artyom, 39, also shared a cute post on his son’s birthday, as he posted many of the same photos Nikki took on her own account.
Dancing with the Stars pro wrote, “Happy first birthday Matteo, mom and dad love you so much (sic).”
Matteo’s birthday came the day before his cousin Buddy’s first birthday on Sunday (08/01/21), after Nikki and her twin sister Bree Bella became pregnant at the same time and gave birth 24 hours apart.
Bree, who has four-year-old Buddy and four-year-old daughter Birdie, and her husband Daniel Brian, also posted messages on social media to celebrate several of her family’s birthdays this week.
She wrote: What a week for birthdays !!!!! I really enjoyed celebrating my stepmother @ garciaana32, my stepbrother Ezekiel, my stepfather @mrjohnlaurinaitis and my nephew Matteo !!!
“Come tomorrow, my sweet little Buddy will join everyone in celebrating his first birthday !! I love you all !!! (sic) “
